Stretch ceiling is perfectly flat surface (sagging disregarded), the resulting tension of special PVC film. To get a quality surface finish by conventional methods requires great financial and labor costs. In this case, the old ways no benefits such as water protection, fire safety (Class M1), quick installation (an average of two per day ceiling), strength (up to 100 kg / sq m), ease of use (no need for special care ), durability (warranty up to 10 years), etc. If we add to this that stretch ceilings large range of colors and textures that they do not fade and are easily removed, mounted, it becomes clear - the alternative to them is not there.

To be fair, and the shortcomings inherent tension ceilings: first, the fear of sharp objects and, secondly, the relative high cost (cheapest ceilings is currently worth about $ 30 per sq ft with delivery and installation) . If the first drawback is intractable, then on the second one can be sure - eventually it will be significantly reduced. There is one drawback - it is unlikely to work on the device of a tension ceiling you could do yourself, if you were not associated with these - even manage to get all the parts. Such work requires not only special equipment and materials not available in retail stores, but also professional skills.

Stretch ceiling is a kind of suspended ceilings, although, strictly speaking, it can not be attributed to them, as it uses the ceiling mount to the base as only one is a rare option. Usually, however, the fabric roof is fixed on the perimeter walls. This method is ideal to hide the flaws of the base ceiling, and laid him on the utilities, incorporation fixtures, ductwork. It can be used for finishing of virtually any premises, including medical, because the material web is certified to use for these purposes.

The film, which is made from the fabric roof is a conventional PVC film of different textures (matt, semi-matt (satin), glossy (lacquer), metallic, suede, marble, leather, etc.) that does not contain cadmium, a thickness of 0.17 0.22 mm, having certain physical properties. The very same ceiling - is made from a single strip of PVC fabric, vykroennoe exact dimensions of the room with all its features. Plans for the pattern to do a professional engineer, as in this case, as in all matters related to the tension ceilings, a lot of subtleties that must be taken into account at all stages of preparation and installation. Following the pattern fabric is treated on the perimeter of the flexible plate - "harpoon", which was later used during installation. In this pattern fabric finishes, it is thoroughly cleaned by special means, formed using vias and pads wrapped in several layers of insulating film. As such, the (convolution) ceiling and comes with the manufacturer (usually from France) company-installer.

Let us consider this process in the simplest case - ceiling installation in direct quadrangular room, without leaving the ceiling pipes, with a lamp like "chandelier". This process consists of many operations and can be understood at first only for people who have experience in construction work and communication with building tool.

The first thing on the wall around the perimeter of the room assigned baguette, which is a plastic profile of hard plastic or duralumin, for which subsequently engages harpoon blade ceiling. The shape, as well as mounting method, different manufacturers have different, although similar with each other. For this operation is primarily determined by the lowest corner of the base ceiling of the room. This is done using gidrourovnya (flexible transparent tube length of about 10 m, filled with tinted liquid). Coming from the lower angle is measured down 1-2 cm and a notation in pencil. In reality, this gap only for technological purposes, to make it easier to get close tool in securing a baguette. Then, using the same gidrourovnya this label is transferred to the other corners of the room. Gidrouroven no longer needed and can be removed. With otbivochnogo cord with the dye is applied to the line to secure the baguette. To do this, one end of the set the mark in one corner and the other on the label in the next corner, the cord must be always taut. With his free hand cord is pulled perpendicular to the wall and released. The meaning of the operation is to tense cord slapped on the wall and left a stain on her direct line from one horizon to the other labels. Repeat for all the walls of the room, get the horizon line along its entire perimeter. This line will be the base for the subsequent installation of baguette.
